The ol' "should non-metalheads wears metal shirts?" debate has been rekindled care of Kourtney Kardashian, who was spotted recently rocking a Cannibal Corpse "Eaten Back to Life" shirt while out on the town in Venice with boyfriend and fellow PDA enthusiast Travis Barker. Kardashian's stylist Dani Michelle revealed to Vogue that the reality TV star borrowed the shirt from the blink-182 drummer. "Kourt has told me before that his closet is an archive itself," Michelle commented. "She can pick any T-shirt to wear and it's the softest, coolest thing ever. Sometimes she just wants to raid it."
As for the debate, former Cannibal Corpse/current Six Feet Under vocalist Chris Barnes came in firmly on the "hell no" side, calling Kardashian a "poser" on Twitter before adding a thumbs-down emoji.
Today (September 6th), Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares presented an opposing viewpoint, tweeting a link to an article about Barnes's reaction to Kardashian's headlining fashion choice along with the message: "He has it all wrong, why wouldn't u want exposure for your music even tho he's not in the band anymore. I wish she was wearing one of my bands tees, great exposure"
